There are “no overt health concerns” regarding animals in a Bowser residence that came under fire earlier this month after The NEWS received phone calls alleging animal abuse sparking an investigation by the SPCA.

“Our constables connected with the owner of the animals and confirmed conditions were satisfactory,” SPCA senior animal protection officer Tina Heary told The NEWS Thursday.

“The animals were recently examined and treated by a vet. There are no overt health concerns.”

Heary said no animals were seized nor voluntarily surrendered during the investigation.

Two weeks ago the B.C. SPCA launched an investigation in Bowser after neighbours reported alleged animal abuse in a residence apparently housing various distressed animals including a pig and a parrot.
